Taking hair loss medication for regrowth can sound like a dream come true for women dealing with thinning hair loss or even too good to be true. There are things to consider when taking hair loss medications before deciding if they are good for you or not. In this blog article, I lay out the facts regarding the good and the bad about taking hair loss medication. 


There are two types of ways to take medications:


Topically: To place an ointment or cream on the scalp in order to regrow new hair.

Orally: To take a pill supplement to get scalp hair growth. 

Which ever type of way that you take your medication when reading the instructions you should see mild hair growth results.


Result Expectations For Hair Loss Medication 

Light thicker hair regrowth should be expected when taking hair loss medications.

People are often disappointed when they expect to have hair restored to the point of when they were in their teens. Having such high expectations might leave the person saddened. 

Mild thicker hair growth should be expected. 


Regrowth Results Wait Time For Hair Loss Medication

Expectations for regrowth results should also be lowered. You have to be patient when taking hair loss supplements or when applying a hair loss medicated cream lotion to the scalp. 

You can expect to have hair regrowth results in about 4 to 6 months when following medication instructions accurately.


How Long Do I Have To Take Hair Loss Medication?

You should stick with the medication treatment for up to a year to see if any results have occurred before quitting unless you are experiencing any side effects when using your hair loss supplements or topical hair loss ointment.

Side effects will be written on the medications paper work whether it be on topical or oral medication application. Read the side effects carefully before making a final decision on taking the medication or not.  

Side effects can be stopped if this happens to you, simply by stop taking the hair loss medications supplements or medicated lotion.

Even though the medication lotions might be purchased over the counter they should always be taken as seriously as taking any other medication from a physician. 

  

What Happens When I Stop Taking The Hair Loss Medication? 

If you decide to stop taking your hair loss medication you can expect to lose the latest hair growth that was just gained from taking the hair loss medication. You can also expect to lose the normal amount of hair fall that would have happened during the time expected while on the medication. 

After that hair loss the normal amount of hair fall will go back to the normal rate that you were losing before you started.

So basically you would need to keep taking your hair loss medication on an ongoing forever basis just as you would any other health medication in order to see ongoing results.  

Warning: Make sure to never take any medications unless a doctor prescribes it to you first. You never know how a medication can effect you.
